Lion

Lion (Review) One in a million. One in a million. I kept repeating that over and over while I sat and watched “Lion”. Saroo was one in a million when he stepped off the train in Calcutta. He had a one in a million chance finding his family he had been separated from. And unfortunately, Saroo was just one of the ...

Nocturnal Animals

Nocturnal Animals (Review) I found it very fitting watching “Nocturnal Animals” at 10:30 p.m. It reminded of me of myself watching films up until 4 a.m. whether it was a school night or not. Now, the only time I’m acting like a “nocturnal animal” is when I’ve gone to bed too early so I’m up, ready to ...

Sing Street

Sing Street (Review) Fulfilling its quota for the “British/European” film of the year, “Sing Street” found its way onto the Golden Globes nominations’ list this year. And like its formers (“Philomena” and “Pride”), I found great charm in the film. Unfortunately, I found it very formulaic as ...

Instantly when watching “Moonlight” you see the struggle that Little faces at the early stages of his life. “Manchester by the Sea” holds its suspense and its viewers until ...

When the Globes and SAGs were announced, I love seeing the unexpected films make their way onto the list, I love seeing who get snubbed and why. Usually this is because there are new films I have to see in time for the big night. Of course ...

La La Land

La La Land (Review) In an emotionally-taxing year of events, “La La Land” may be the brightest two hours of pure joy and entertainment you will see all year. I had to resist the urge to stay in my seat for another showing. It didn’t take long though until I was in my car with the soundtrack loaded and “The ...

Fences

Fences (Review) Two of the most engaging performances I have seen in years unfold in the greats Viola Davis and Denzel Washington. Working like two boxers in a ring, the married couple cracks jokes, exchange jabs and never miss a beat in the film adaptation of “Fences”. Commanding the screen like they conquered ...
